Item description for Der Monchsbischof von Tours im 'Martinellus' (Untersuchungen zur antiken Literatur und Geschichte 79) by Meinolf Vielberg...
Nearly 50 hagiographic dossiers were compiled in Gaul during Late Antiquity between the 4th and 8th century. The `Martellinus', named after the Monk Bishop of Tours, was the largest and most influential of them, and the model it created had an effect on the whole of European culture. Using the changing form of the story of St. Martin in the different epochs, Meinolf Vielberg demonstrates the overarching unity of the model behind the changes.
